At Magdeburg in the former DDR we left the Autobahn to find power. The holiday made it hard. At the end we went down to a yacht-harbor by the Elbe. Long stairs led down to the piers and the power-outlets. Luckily outside a building we spotted an old forgotten socket still with 32 amps - just what Green Car could use. Nobody was around to ask, so we just hooked up and walked back to town. We chanced upon an open exhibition about the history of Magdeburg. Very well laid out and highly interesting and frightening too. The big town was completely destroyed in 1631 during the 30-years war and again in 1945. Still with many open spaces and a feeling of buildings lacking. When we returned to Green Car 4 hours later it was fully charged, and the harbor-master and his wife invited us for a beer down on the floating pier. When we reached Berlin Green Car had done around 300 km and still with 15% power left - enough to 30 km more.
